12:18 pm
a 100 layer is just evaporated in an instant on me. thrilled almost imogen or lit on an on you to miss it stumbling you've. i don't see a way out. it seems to me that we are completely something i don't think there's a solution for that. and from the minimum prices of many products i buy of increased at least 3 times. inflation is at 70 percent. now they say, but we can do the math. it's way more than 70 percent. i don't trust the government figures many been the gym like a lot of the for more i am joy now by my colleague. a catchy, a crown. 70 percent is an unfathomable number for a lot of people break us down what this means in practice and people's daily lives . well, what it means as a citizen, say it's a nightmare in turkey. basically this is the official figure which puts turkey the 6th position in the highest inflation league. and this is the official figure. so, there are many express today in turkey. analysts and economy is saying that the

12:20 pm
they don't seem to revert back from this and politically. what did this mean for president ad on the is an election next year? obviously, this is an economic crisis for a lot of people. is it impacting his chances of re election we, we need to remember what brought to do on to power in 2002. that was the massive financial and economic crisis in 2001. so our doing came to power dos, part to came to power with the promise of stability and welcome welfare for this country. and this crisis in 2001 wiped out the entire congressional political system in turkey. it broke a conventional parties below the low, the threshold and on managed to came to power a single part of government. so we are sort of facing a historical repetition here. so this isn't meant to be seen in less than a year. i can catch it, breaking down the economic implications of the inflation surgeon 30. thanks so much

12:25 pm
found that 22 percent of startup founders and germany have a migration background. we asked the foundations chairman carl hines packet about why migrate founders are on the rise here. migraine found us typically are more risk takers, more internationally oriented, more ready to go for an exit strategy in the long run. they have a higher share offer. strong academic background, especially in natural sciences and technology and so on the whole, the structure is confirmed. we do have some more evidence on the obstacles in this new report. and in particular, the migrant found us complain about too much rocker, see about

a lack of venture capital options and to some extent, also about racism. which is a feel in particular in dealing with the terminal iraq or c and backed germany is racing to become independent of russian fossil fuels and liquefied natural gas. delivered by cargo ships is a major part of its plan to get their work has already started on the country's 1st floating l n. g terminal. it's expected to inter service within months laying the foundation for greater energy independence. that terminal that will allow germany to import gas by c, $150.00 steel piles will anchor the natural gas terminal to the sea floor. it's being built in record time liquefied natural gas is set to start arriving here by
